Since before we opened our doors in 1989, families have generously given their time, talents, prayers, and financial support. God has abundantly blessed the faithful giving of our families over the past decades and we eagerly anticipate all that God has in store for Covenant Day School.
Every gift at Covenant Day School, whether big or small, makes an impact. Each gift is vital for our growth, but even more importantly, each gift gives us the opportunity to bring Glory to God.
We are grateful to our supporters who have made CDS one of their philanthropic priorities and their investment in our mission, our students, and our teachers.
We invite you to contact the Development Office or explore our website to learn more about how you can be a part of the culture of giving at Covenant Day School.
Each fall, CDS launches the Annual Campaign, an appeal to the entire CDS community seeking contributions that will ensure the ongoing legacy of our school. Unlike many schools, CDS balances its budget on a yearly basis from tuition revenue. Therefore, gifts to our Annual Campaign provide program enhancements that make the CDS experience exceptional for all students, as well as tuition assistance for families who demonstrate a financial need. Click here to learn more about our Annual Campaign.
Some employers will match a philanthropic donation given by their employees to Covenant Day School. These gifts allow you to double your impact on Covenant Day School. After contacting your employer to see if they are a matching gifts corporation, they will instruct you on the necessary forms to complete and return to the development office at Covenant Day School.
For questions or to let us know about an impending matching gift, please contact Janet Grimmer Merle.
Capital Campaigns secure major gifts to meet the expansion and enhancement needs of our campus. Every CDS family here today has benefited from the support of those who came before them. In the fall of 2016, Covenant Day completed Phase 1 of its Legacy campaign which included a lower school playground, a 2,200 square foot fitness center, and a 56,000 square foot state of the art, high-tech high school facility. Campaigns typically occur once or twice in a decade and pledges are normally fulfilled over a three year period. Future phases, we pray, will include a larger high school gym, a theater/performing arts facility, a lower school addition, an eight-lane track, and an enlarged stadium field.
